MT-BRONZE

MT-BRONZE@DF our 80% bronze filled filament which is easy to print, sand & polish. With MT-BRONZE you can create the most beautiful objects with real METAL characteristics, such as a 3 x higher weight ten PLA, a METAL feel & touch and thermal conductivity. Due to the high percentage of fillers MT-BRONZE has virtually no shrinkage, a special lubricant increases the flow and prevents MT-BRONZE to adhere to the nozzle. Finally all above combined with the correct hardness results in a filament that can be printed on almost every type of FDM 3d printer available on the market with retraction enabled on nozzles ≥0.35 mm.

MT-BRONZE features:

  • Approx. 80% bronze content
  • PLA-based, 3 times heavier
  • Metal feel & “cold” touch
  • Excellent printability on both direct & Bowden style 3D printers
  • Processing additive added for easy & reliable printing
  • Quick & easy polishing and other post-processing
  • Possibility to print with retraction
  • Works on nozzles ≥0.35 mm

Packaging:

MT-BRONZE is available in nearly any type of  packaging and labelling. Take in mind the high density of the product to select the preferred amount per reel. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.

Additional info:

MT-BRONZE can be printed without a heated bed, but if you do have a heated bed the recommended temperature is ± 35-60˚C. Storage: Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly. MT-BRONZE can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.

* Please consider the use of a hardened steel nozzle when printing with MT-BRONZE. The bronze powder inside makes the filament abrasive and will result in fast wear of regular brass nozzles.
* Please have a look at the “Printing, post-processing & other info document” for further tips & tricks.
